We were in the mood for BBQ and based on reviews on Google decided to visit Henry's Hi Life... (3/4/17). In order to get on the list to be seated, you have to take a number and place your order. While you wait for your name to be called, you can enjoy 2-3 drinks at the bar; cash only or... More

Baby back ribs were very tasty. Half rack is enough for anyone (I'm 6'5) as it comes with salad and potato. I got there at 5:40 pm and didn't get to eat until 7:10pm. I wolfed down my food and still made it in time for the start of the 7:30pm Shark's game.

This is an excellent Shark's pregame destination. Don't let the small size and packed bar deter you. They have a process and it works. When you enter, grab a number across the bar, then grab yourself a drink. When your number is called, be ready to order...order your food, then grab another drink. When your name is called, you're brought... More

We eat dinner here every time we come to a Sharks game. The baby back ribs are the best anywhere and all the food is good. We line up at the door so when they open up we can get a low number and get seated quickly when the start serving dinner. If you have not been here before the... More

Good food. Not worth the extra long wait. Much too waiting for fair food. If you have the time, have at it.
